Texas Secretary of State turns down blankets, beds and more Harvey donations, asks for prayers instead

On Tuesday, Quebec's Minister of International Relations, Christine St. Pierre, offered to donate blankets, pillows, beds, hygienic products and manpower to the survivors of Hurricane Harvey. She spoke with Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos, who was touched that she called him, but he turned down the offer. He preferred that she send him prayers.

With Hurricane Harvey being the one of the biggest storm disasters in recent US history, perhaps prayers AND supplies would be a better decision. Or, as commentator Paul Begala tweeted, "This moron doesn't understand that those blankets and other donations are the answers to prayers."
